Meet the Maker : Peter Dredge from Meadowbank and Dr Edge

Gerald and Sue Ellis picked the first grapes from their large vineyard at the top end of the Derwent River in 1976, having planted the vines in '74. It was a labour of love, and a calculated risk, there being only a handful of wineries in the region at the time. They made their wines at the neighbouring winery, Frogmore Creek, who eventually purchased the Meadowbank cellar door, leaving the Ellis's to focus on growing grapes.

Enter rising star winemaker Peter Dredge, a South Australian who did time at Petaluma before moving to Tasmania. Dredge, having been intimately associated with the vineyard for six years, formed a partnership with the now extended Ellis family (Gerald, Sue, daughter Mardi and her husband, Alex Dean) to relaunch Meadowbank. With old vines, quality winemaking and a families commitment to a special site, the future of Meadowbank seems assured. Exciting times.

One of the best known (and loved!) wine makers in Tasmania, Dredge was also the Young Gun of Wine People’s Choice recipient in 2017, and continues to impress us with his wines. Join in the Q & A chat where we'll learn more about his winemaking journey and what it takes to make this coveted Tassie juice.

Meet the Maker : Christian and Michael from Dal Zotto!

Here at Good Pair Days, we always find it exciting when winemakers bring something of their old countries to Australia. This is exactly the case with Dal Zotto. For all intents and purposes, this is a classic family-run Italian winery, where passions run high, perfection is the only standard, and where flavour and character always come first. The fact that Dal Zotto is based in King Valley, Australia, merely enhances their brilliance, and allows the vintners to experiment freely with their favourite varietals from back home. What’s not to love?

Dal Zotto is a winery which is run with a key philosophy and motto at its heart: ‘your origins are just as important as your future’. In a sense, that really says it all: this operation is one which may well have one foot firmly back in rural Italy, but their sights are set firmly on the possibilities and opportunities which Australia has provided them. After all, those delicious Italian grape varietals (which include Glera, Barbera, Fiano, and Garganega among others) sit side by side with international varietals which the winemaking family simply wouldn’t be allowed to vinify were they back in Europe. The wines of Dal Zotto are filled with a vibrancy, a dedication to excellence, and a set of flavours which encapsulate their approach, and are a must-try for those who want to see just how flexible and versatile our endlessly fascinating wine regions really are.

Wine: Dal Zotto 'Cuore del Re' Sangiovese Blend 2017 (coming this Friday!)
